I Believe in Father Christmas

This weeks theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Through the Looking Glass - Projects with Depth".  This 3D diorama card is over 2 inches deep, so fits the challenge perfectly!  This has always been one of my favourite Christmas songs, though when you actually listen to it it's kinda depressing! LOL  The Polar Express movie played it's part in the inspiration for this too :)

 I've used rock candy stickles on the snowflakes and it always saddens me that the sparkly frostiness of it is never done justice in a photo!  White enamel accents that I used for the snow on the tree branches is wonderfully dimensional, but alas that too is lost in this picture!


Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

Dan that is a fab card - I love the images you have used.

It is so annoying when things like the crackle/stickles/enamel don't show well in photos - isn't it - as they can bring so much to a project.

That's so lovely Dan! I've been meaning to have a go at a diorama.

I can't believe that one is 2" deep, the photo is lying again! :D
